My Carpet Nightmare...

This post is sponsored by Mohawk.  This is my story, and a great way to turn a nightmare into a happy ending!

Do you have a carpet nightmare story?  I sure do...

I have kids.  Two of them to be exact.  Somehow on the weekends and during school breaks, they multiply.  Our home seems to be the main hub for all children ages nine through fifteen.  Don't get me wrong, I love that they want to be here, but they have left my carpet looking way less than stellar.  In fact, our carpet is horrific.  We jumped on the berber carpet train years ago, because we were told that it didn't stain as easily, was easy to clean, and extremely durable.  We could not have been more wrong.  There was nothing stain resistant about the carpet that we bought...nothing.
We lived in carpet jail.  We had pieces of furniture and rugs strategically placed over the really bad stains, and we had just learned to live with the others.

As a mother and self professed neat freak, living in this condition was unbearable.  
Just sitting in my living room made me anxious and angry.  That nasty carpet had to go.  
Once I finally convinced Matt that the time had come to get new carpeting, the hunt for a more stain resistant carpet was on.  It couldn't just be stain resistant though, it had to be pretty and soft too. 

See, I am a spiller, and so are the kids.  So, we definitely need something that resists liquid.

We have a monster dog...I so wish he still looked like this...

We also have two sweet animals.  One is a monster dog with huge paws.  He loves being outside, and when he comes in, his paws are usually filthy.  I try to wipe them off, but he usually gets past me so quickly that I am more likely going to be cleaning floors instead of paws...crazy dog!

And...I want my friends to bring their sweet babies over without being afraid to put them down on my floor!  

Mohawk makes an incredible carpet line called Luxuriously Soft SmartStrand® Silk™ with DuPont™ Sorona®.   Mohawk’s SmartStrand Silk with DuPont Sorona carpet features a different kind of fiber—it’s called triexta. Triexta is the only carpet fiber that has stain and soil resistance engineered into the fiber itself. Because this protection is natural to the fiber, no harsh chemical treatments are applied during manufacturing. Stain and soil protection lasts the life of the carpet, meaning the carpet looks newer for longer. This creates happy customers.

I want to make absolute sure that what I am buying has been tested, by families.  Families with dogs and kids.   The person below has a dog that got into M&M's and that stain came surely my dog's muddy paws wouldn't ruin this carpet!

Mohawk wants to send you a FREE BOX OF SAMPLES of their carpet, so you can see for yourself!

Why wouldn't's free, and you have the opportunity to test it out yourself!  Then, if you have a little girl like me, you can let her have them to use in her Barbie house ;)

I would love to hear your worst carpet nightmares...I know we all have at least one!
